Fallout New Texas: A Post-Apocalyptic Adventure in New Texas
“… War… War never changes.”
The Campaign takes place in the “Republic” of New Texas, what we would today call the states of Texas and Oklahoma (they refer to Oklahoma as “Occupied North Texas”). This pen & paper game is meant to dovetail into the Fallout Video game series and specifically takes place after the start of Fallout 2 but before the start of Fallout 3. The Chosen One of Arroyo was sent out on his quest for the Holy RobCo Garden of Eden Creation Kit (G.E.C.K.) on the same day that our unfortunate band of adventurers set out to defeat the evil AntAgonizer. Fallout 1 & 2 are completely canon (though the event of Fallout 2, most especially the death of the Enclave President have NOT YET come to pass!)
For this game we will be using the d20 Modern rules set with modifications. Use books are d20 Modern Core Manual, d20 Modern: Future, d20 Modern: Future: Post-Apocalypse, and d20 Modern: Past. I will use the d20 Modern: Menace Manual for a few monsters. These are the only books I am using for the campaign, period. The content (no pictures) of the d20 Modern system main rules (including parts of d20 Future and Past) can be found LEGALLY for free in the d20 Modern Systems Reference Document (known as the MSRD) from Wizards of the Coast. Eventually I will upload all that information here but it would be a good idea to get your own set as well, especially until then.
Meeting Times and Places
The games will be held from approximately 6 pm to 11 pm on Wednesday nights.
How To Use this Site so that people can find stuff on the site
The point of this site is to create a hyperlinked campaign setting and rules set to assist us in further games in the future as well as a serve as a record for our enjoyment for years to come.
The adventure log is ONLY for writing down what ACTUALLY HAPPENED, in other words, it is for RECAPS and GM-announcements only. PLANS that you are debating need to go into the Forums. Posting in the adventure log nets you bonus xp, even if it is only to make corrections to someone else’s posting or further clarify what your character was doing / thinking. In the adventure log you may also post your character’s thoughts or “diary” if you want. Thor’s entries are an excellent example. NOT A PLACE FOR GENERAL DISCUSSION.
The Wiki is for the use of all. Before you make a new wiki page, please make sure that one does not already exist as making a new wiki page with the same name as an old wiki page deletes the old page, along with all the hardwork that someone put into it. The Wiki is for listing of facts, figures, stats, etc. Inside the wiki you will find the character creation rules, lists and descriptions of places, factions, items, and even characters (though mostly NPCs). Helping to populate the Wiki section with pictures, quotes, and even new pages on factions and places (remembering not to accidentally delete old ones by using names that already exist), will receive bonus xp. In particular I need assistance matching factions to places on the map, so send those suggestions in!
This is for very important characters (including the PCs) past and present. Please post your character’s stats and writeups here. If your character dies or retires then the information on how they did so should be added to their update but the entry should NEVER be deleted as it could cause problem between linking pages. Helping to populate the Characters section with pictures, quotes, and even new pages (remembering not to accidentally delete old ones by using names that already exist), will receive bonus xp. Simply transcribing information from the core rulesbook to the character creation section would be an easy way to net a good chunk of xp (or even a new level).
The Items tab has not yet been completely implemented by Obsidian Portal but it is still functional. Stats for items, particularly rare or important ones, go here. Remember that a HUGE point of this is to hyperlink pages together. You could even create your own hyperlinked inventory to more readily track your loots! Helping to populate the Items section with pictures, stats, and even new pages (remembering not to accidentally delete old ones by using names that already exist), will receive bonus xp. Simply transcribing information from the core rulesbook to the Items section would be an easy way to net a good chunk of xp (or even a new level).
While the adventure log is the soul of the site, and the wiki the heart, the forums is the brain. Any discussion of rules, plans, IC or OOC belongs IN THE FORUMS! Anyone can make threads. The forum is the appropriate place to ask questions, or make comments about the rules, roleplaying, or campaign setting. Want to suggest some variant rules? Feel that something is too overpowered or underpowered? Have an idea on what the characters should be doing in the campaign? Want to post a new character concept before you finalize it? THIS IS THE PLACE TO DO IT!
In the calendar section I’ll be posting the dates, times, and places of the games from now on. It can send out automatic email updates which should help you all to know when the games are.
This actually uses google maps so that you can pin points to the posted map of texas (after finding a way to scan them I will be posting an updated map of New Texas and another one of the US). These pins can be labelled however you like and can even hyperlink over to other pages.
The comments section is for people whom are not in the game to make comments or ask to join the campaign.
